Roundtable : Digital Labour History and Labour Studies
03 May 2022 @ 14:00 - 15:30
The digital age has transformed historical and labour research. Mass digitization of archival sources, novel computational methods and the rise of the digital public sphere encourage us to re-think how we research labour and write history in the twenty-first century. It is high time to scrutinize the ”digital turn” in the context of labour history and labour studies.
Participants: Eric Blanc, New York University (computational text analysis of the 2018 US teachers’ strikes); Risto Turunen, University of Warsaw (text mining of machine-readable labour newspapers); Jenny Jansson, Uppsala University (the labour movement in the digital age).
